“Wi-Fi helps students get better grades, survey says” By: Katherine Culajay

In 2008 the Wi-Fi alliance made a survey where they asked college students questions about Wi-Fi and how does this help them to succeed and have good grades. According to this survey, 75% of students said that Wi-Fi access on their college campuses helps them get better grades. Also, the survey indicates that “students will give up beer before giving up Wi-Fi”, this means that for some students Wi-Fi does make a difference on their every day routine. Another thing that is important to say about this article is what Edgar Figueroa who is the executive director of the Wi-Fi alliance said, “Students respond to the quick access to information that Wi-Fi makes possible, including access to academic information and university schedules.” In other words, Wi-Fi makes life easier for students because it gives them an opportunity to check the information that they need for an assignment or important things about the course.

Wi-Fi is essential for students because it is like a tool that helps them to create their path to academic success. However, not every college has Wi-Fi, and the ones they do it doesn’t work very well. As this survey demonstrates, students believes that by having Wi-Fi they can have the chance of having better grades or at least they have the opportunity to catch up on their work. That’s why Wi-Fi is essential for college and its students.

When looking up any places or budget towards City Tech being able to give resources such for their students I found two great articles. One article gave me a full listing of every single computer lad that there is in city tech throughout the whole campus. While the other article gave me an overview of the budget and how it works for City Tech. It really surprised me to see that City Tech has various options for students although not all of them were actually computer labs just for students they may be for professors or a classroom instead of being just a computer lab. It is really great to see that City Tech being a technology school really gives us a big amount of options to where we may want to take advantage of the resources.

The article second article speaks about the budget issue with City Tech. Of course there is going to be a budget when it comes to a school. City Tech has a budget that if anything that is less and five thousand dollars is considered equipment. While anything less than five thousand dollars will just be considered a supply in the budget. Considering that I think we still would like to find out specifically how much City Techs budget is, it would be useful to know because City Tech has various computer labs and technology is not cheap.
